Live Review: Hilltop Hoods + Maverick Sabre – Allphones Arena, Sydney (02.04.16)

April 4, 2016

Kanye West once said, “I am flawed as a human being, but my music is perfect…You could go back to Beethoven and shit, but as far as this lifetime, though, this is all you got.” While I agree with most of this statement, the truest aspect is the comparison of the self-described biggest musician on […]

Live Review: Backstreet Boys – Allphones Arena, Sydney (09.05.15)

May 10, 2015

Backstreet’s back and these five men, well grown from boys, are very much here to put on a show for the largely female 25 to 40 year olds dominating the audience tonight. AJ Maclean, Howie Dorough (aka Howie D), Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson and Brian Littrell’s collective appeal has hardly waned in 20 years it seems. Appearing silhouetted red on the […]

May 11, 2014

Live Review: Paramore + You Me At Six + Twenty One Pilots – Allphones Arena, Sydney (11.01.14)

January 12, 2014

If you could mix together a blend of emo, pop punk, fast paced alternative rock and a dash of rap you would be pretty close to summarising the different genres and sounds you’d hear at tonight’s concert. All of this would be delivered in large high energy doses courtesy of all three acts.

Live Review: Ricky Martin + DJ Kid Massive – Allphones Arena, Sydney (18.10.13)

October 19, 2013

Sometimes you forget that Ricky Martin has been a stalwart of the entertainment industry for the last near 30 years. He’s an accomplished and successful singer, songwriter, actor and even an author. Tonight he’d be showcasing his greatest hits which have put him on the map as an entertainer and I don’t think there was a single […]
